What is COVID -19
COVID-19 is a new respiratory disease spreading around the world and it is caused by a novel coronavirus 2019, first discovered in China. COVID-19 is short form for “coronavirus disease 2019.”
The virus is thought to spread mainly between people who are in close contact with one another (approx. 6 feet or 1 meter) and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
People are most contagious when they are the sickest. But those who don’t have a lot of symptoms can still pass the virus on to others.
There is currently no vaccine or cure for COVID-19 but researchers are working to find one.
